Woowon Kang from the University of Chicago- "Experimental Study of Non-Abelian Statistics in the Fractional Quantum Hall Effect"

Mon, Nov 22, 2010, 1:15 pm to 6:00 pm
Topological phases of matter, apart from being a fundamental phenomenon in quantum physics, has a potential application in fault tolerant quantum computation. The fractional quantum Hall effect to date is the most clearly established example of a topological phase. Topological phases are notable for possessing exotic particles as elementary...

Generating and Detecting Mechanical Force to Coordinate Cell Divison - Sophie Dumont Department of Systems Biology, Harvard Medical School

QUIET experiment for CMB polarization measurement, Dr. Akito Kusaka, Kavli Institute for Cosmological Physics (KICP)

Fri, Nov 19, 2010, 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Cosmic microwave background (CMB) polarization is the ultimate probe of primordial gravity waves in the early universe, via the B-mode (or parity odd) signal on degree angular scales. A detection of such a signal would be strong evidence of the inflation scenario and represent indirect observation of a fundamentally new phenomenon near the grand...
